Wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni will lead India in the inaugural Twenty-20 World Cup in South Africa. Yuvraj Singh will be his deputy.
India will be without Test captain Rahul DravidSachin Tendulkar Sourav Ganguly, who all of the tournament, while pace spearhead Zaheer Khan has been rested.

Delhi opener Virender Sehwag, all-rounder Irfan Pathan off-spinner Harbhajan Singh in the 15-man team.

Pace bowler S Sreesanth, who has been named in the Twenty-20 squad, has been rested for the seven-match ODI series in England, beginning August 21. Munaf Patel, ignored for Test series and the preceding one-dayers against Ireland and South Africa because of a lower back injury sustained in Bangladesh in May, will replace him.

Twenty-four year-old Baroda-based Yusuf Pathan’s inclusion in the Twenty20 squad is on expected lines as he has the ability to hit the ball long and hard and bowl fast off-breaks, but Joginder Sharma’s came as a bolt from the blue.
